A person allegedly working in Apple’s supply chain has spilled the beans on what we can expect from the iSight camera used in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, set to arrive next month.

According to the source, the 12-megapixel camera will boast a bigger sensors capable of taking in more light — hopefully enabling the next-generation iPhones to perform better when shooting in low-light situations.

Do you have an iPhone 6 Plus which takes blurry photos? If so, then according to Apple you could be owed a fix, due a faulty internal camera component.

Apple’s website notes that the issue in question affects a number of iPhone 6 Plus handsets sold between September 2014 and January 2015. The problem relates to the the iSight camera on the back of the phone, rather than the “selfie” camera at the front.

Rumors that the iPhone 6s will receive a new 12-megapixel camera with 4K video recording got a boost today — thanks to a document allegedly leaked by a Foxconn employee.

The document also suggests that the iPhone 6s’ front-facing camera will receive a massive upgrade from the 1.2-megapixel sensor found in current iPhones thanks to a new 5-megapixel sensor.

Apple has been secretly experimenting with dual-camera iPhone lenses for three years, according to Altek’s Xiaru Wen, the CEO of the company responsible for building similar camera modules for HTC and Huawei.

The report claims that Apple has been held up by two challenges until now: technical problems resulting in blurred images, and an inability to find a manufacturer able to build enough of the components in the allotted time.

But things may be about to change.
